This paper focuses on learning about post-processing of composite materials in the current context of Manufacturing Engineering education in Spain. The use of composites has been significantly increased in different sectors in industry during the last decades. The students,taking manufacturing courses in engineering study plans, need basic formation concerning post-processing of composites. Due to the complexity of the process, powerful numerical tools are needed to develop practical models focused on damage prediction. Learning skills include modeling of anisotropic materials and specific concepts of composite such as machining induced damage.
